Chuck in the City

by Jordan Wheeler, illustrated by Christopher Auchter

tagged: humorous stories, stories in verse, native canadian

Chuck loves a good adventure. He proved that in Just a Walk. Now Chuck and his mom are heading to the city to visit his grandmother in her new condo. He knows he shouldn't wander off, but the lure of the lively city streets proves too much for a curious little boy to resist.

A rhythmic ebbing and flowing of words and phrases punctuates Chuck's exciting escapade as he befriends and provokes some furry, four-legged city critters, dodges skaters and bladers on bustling sidewalks, gets lost and then uses his wiles to find his way back home.
